From the introduction, written by Marion Arnold:
 
“Whether working as a sculptor or making photomontages, Jane Alexander produces two- and three-dimensional forms which share a capacity to disrupt our expectations of appearances.
 
Alexander’s current works are particularly pertinent to our society as it tries to initiate a dialogue between entrenched beliefs and the many voices of democratic debate. Her images are broadly located within a framework of socio-political commentary but they are neither authoritarian nor didactic. Alexander is not a prescriptive artist with a singular message or sense of moral imperative. She aims to jolt visual sensibilities and, having gained the viewer’s attention, her forms require us to re-think our understanding of the human condition. Avoiding the traps of predictable narrative and manipulative emotionalism, Alexander’s sculptures and photomontages examine situations of disempowerment, suffering, and acceptance.”
 
Published on the occasion of the 1995 Standard Bank Young Artist Award, Jane Alexander: Sculpture and Photomontage offers an overview of her early work, with an introduction by Marion Arnold and catalogue essay by Ivor Powell.
